Hey everyone! Tomorrow (8/6) is the last day to give feedback to ACHD regarding their Garden City Bike/Ped plan. With Anser being in the center of Garden City and having so many children walking and biking to school, these plans directly effect our children's safety! Please take a moment and let your voice be heard. Personally, I asked ACHD to prioritize the 43rd St sidewalks, bike lanes, and the proposed bike/ped crossing at 43rd and Chinden as well as better bike infrastructure along Veteran's Parkway to increase visibility and safety for those children commuting from the bench area.

I'm a member of the ACHD's Bicycle Advisory Committee, please feel free to contact me or any BAC members about any bike/ped infrastructure concerns that you have and we will do our best to work with ACHD to address them. Thank you!
Hello Anser families! We are brand new and have a son going into 5th and a daughter going into 7th grade this fall. We would love to connect with some kids so they have some friends and familiar faces before the first day! If anyone would be open to some play dates or even a picnic at the park please PM me!
Another great Friday at Anser! A big thank you to Pete Brooks @ Uncaught Moments!
Hi there! I was encouraged to share my post to your page.
“I’m a musher in the Boise area and I’m willing to come to your kid(s) school and do a presentation on sled dogs! This is a great way for them to meet an actual sled dog and stand on the back of a sled. If you are a teacher or know if your kids teacher is interested in a presentation, please have them message me! Also, please spread the word. Thanks!“
Thank you to our thoughtful Family Council, for the scrumptious breakfast provided to our whole staff today! You sustain us in many ways.

"We are crew, not passengers." Kurt Hahn

Operating as usual

Field day was an absolute blast! The kids loved learning to drum, eating some Peaceful Belly ice cream, doing three legged races, getting their faces painted and everything in between!

Pete’s JH science class has been studying earthquakes, and how their shake patterns can cause damage in certain areas. In a project examining the engineering of earthquake safe buildings, these students created their own earthquake protected structures! They will place these on a shake plate created by Pete, and put their own engineering and architectural skills to the test!

1st grade hosted their Exhibition Night yesterday, and the students and families dug into their lessons on plants and worms! The students presented about the plant life cycle, and showed off their plant experiments. To round it out, our first graders took their families out to dig for worms! Great job to these students for showing off their exemplary plant and worm knowledge!

Our JH students went to the Quaker Hill Ropes Course this week for their annual adventure! Anser students of all grades have adventure to foster team building, encourage students to step out of their comfort zones, and to create opportunities for leadership. These students did an amazing job tackling the course in teams, and with arms out to support their peers!

As our 2/3 students have expanded their knowledge of pollinators this semester, they also raised several Painted Lady Butterflies! After watching them grow up from small caterpillars to incredible butterflies, Julie’s 2/3 crew released theirs!

Have you signed up for a Community Experience? Want to bring home a beautiful classroom art project? The Anser online auction closes today at 7:00pm! Don’t miss out!


Our 2nd and 3rd grade students have spent part of this year studying pollinators and they have learned about different species and their importance in pollination! To honor this work, these students created drawings of different pollinators which have been etched into these ceramic pots! There will be 4 pots, one from each 2/3 crew, up for auction. Head to the link in our bio to bid now!


First grade students study cities and communities each year, and craft their own box city in the fall. As a continuation of this work, these students made skyscraper lamps for this year’s auction! Each student drew a self portrait for the windows to complete the top of their skyscraper! To get this piece and any other classroom art, head to the link in our bio. The online auction is open for just 3 more days!


Our 6th graders crafted these shrinky dink mobiles, full of different anatomical drawings! These students explored the human body anatomy and physiology, and understood how the sum of these parts function for the body as a whole. This mobile is the perfect fusion of the science and creative brain!
This item and all of our other classroom art is up for auction this week!


Today we want to preview the classroom art piece up for auction by our Junior High students! Like a fingerprint, the iris has its own unique identifiers, and no two are alike. These students have spent this year learning about identity, who we are, and how we affect the people and world around us. Identity has significance through the historical, sociological, scientific, and even mathematical lens! To highlight their identity these students crafted this lamp, covered in drawings of their own eyes!
This lamp will be available to bid on at this year's Celebration and Auction. Check our auction website this week for the listing!


Each year at our Spring Celebration we auction off art projects created by our different crews. This year our Kindergarten crews made two beautiful birdhouses to honor their expedition work! Each birdhouse features wood burned drawings of different birds done by our students. These crews spend their year researching different birds, becoming experts in their habitats, their body beaks, and feathers and so much more. We hope these birdhouses can inspire another generation of bird watchers and lovers!
Our auction website is now live, and keep your eye out this week for the classroom art to go live as well!


Thank you to all of our incredible sponsors for this year’s Spring Celebration! We have reached our $10,000 goal for sponsorships and we are so grateful for their generosity!
You can still donate or sponsor the Celebration at the link in our bio.


We want to showcase one of the many items that will be available to purchase at this year’s auctio! Anser parent Tom Taylor is a talented writer, illustrator, performer, and multi-media artist, who has written several books and plays! Tom will be selling his children’s book, “The Adventures of Sam and Duke: Where Has Sam’s Shadow Gone?” A story about young Sam and his dog Duke on the search for Sam’s shadow, which has mysteriously disappeared! This fun and introspective children’s book will be purchasable at this year’s event and proceeds will go back to Anser and Tom! A huge thank you to all of our Anser families who share their incredible talents and hobbies during our auction!

While the weather was nice, Anne’s Street Art elective made it down to Freak Alley to check out Boise’s awesome street art! They met with one of Boise’s famous street artists at Sector 17, and learned all about the process behind street art, and how so many artists have come to create their pieces in Freak Alley!
